Infotecs, an international cyber security and threat intelligence platform provider, is combining Infotecs’s ViPNet technology with the credit card-sized Raspberry Pi mini PC.
An ever increasing variety of devices, control systems and equipment are involved in network data exchange for businesses of all sizes. Devices that were not originally designed to be connected to the Internet are now accessible online.
Organisations that previously were not concerned with IT security now face a multitude of security challenges and need to implement low cost yet highly effective security solutions. Many businesses are not aware of the extent of cyber vulnerability and risk which they now face.
In answer to the demands of today’s rapidly evolving environments, Infotecs has developed a clever, cost-effective cyber security solution based on Raspberry Pi. In some sectors, the single-board computer has become key part of innovative business applications. The Infotecs solution for Raspberry 3 model B consists of a hardened Linux-based operating system and ViPNet Coordinator. In combination with Raspberry Pi, the image forms a hardware appliance. As a result, this credit card-sized mini-PC can be used as a fully-functional VPN gateway and firewall based on ViPNet technology.
ViPNet security technology for Raspberry Pi is an efficient and promising solution for a number of security challenges, including the Internet of Things (IoT). It provides highly secure protection against both external and internal threats – at a reasonable price. It may also be implemented to encrypt networked computer cash register systems in retail, or protect VoIP, printers, building infrastructures, and IP video cameras.
Another example of an area which can benefit from the solution is telecommunications, where Infotecs enabled secure Raspberry Pi can provide secure and cost-efficient systems access.
“Our ViPNet solution for Raspberry Pi allows organisations to implement enterprise grade security for situations where previously security was considered too costly. It extends and expands your secure foot-print in a highly efficient yet cost-effective way”, said Josef Waclaw, CEO of Infotecs GmbH. “It’s the only solution on the market that provides the highest levels of security at such an attractive entry point.”
ViPNet technology provides highly secure solutions for the extended enterprise. Its unique symmetric key and peer-to-peer capabilities enable it to establish direct, secure, end-to-end connections without key exchanges or handshakes, thus reliably preventing Man-in-the-Middle (MITM) attacks and protecting from insider threats.
